An interesting take on what is happening between the US and Israel; however, I would disagree that supporters of Ron Paul should take another look…if anything, this furthers his argument that we (the US) should keep our nose out of other country’s affairs…

Congress has given President Obama notice that, if he initiates the use of offensive military force without prior and clear authorization through an Act of Congressthe action would constitute an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section IV of the Constitution.

Specifically, H. Con. Resolution 107 has been introduced by Congressman Walter B. Jones of North Carolina:

“The issue of presidents taking this country to war without congressional approval is one that I have long been concerned about…Just last week, President Obama’s Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told the United States Senate that he only needed to seek ‘international’ approval prior to initiating yet another war, this time in Syria.”

Jones was referring to an exchange between Senator Jeff Sessions, and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, in which Panetta indicated that “international permission” rather than Congressional approval provided a “legal basis” for military action by the United States.

After Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, General Martin Dempsey acknowledged to Senator Sessions, that the military does act with the authority of Congress (via a declaration of war or under the War Powers Resolution),  Panetta continued to insist that he needed to seek legal authorization from the United Nations and/or NATO.

"Sanctions do not work. They are precursors to war and usually lead to war. They undermine our economy and our national security. They result in terrible, unnecessary suffering among the civilian population in the target countries and rarely even inconvenience their leaders. We must change our foreign policy from one of interventionism and confrontation to cooperation and diplomacy. This race to war against Iran is foolhardy and dangerous. As with the war on Iraq, the arguments for further aggression and war on Iran are based on manipulations and untruths. We need to learn our lesson and reject this legislation and the push for war."

Can we say TREASON?????

It appears that Barack Obama has again ignored the rule of law by signing a defense appropriations bill that prohibits him sharing vital United States leading-edge strategic US missile technology with Russia, yet he has told both houses of Congress that he plans to share the US missile technology anyway.  Why is this important?  Because it goes light-years beyond partisan politics and into an area where our national defense will be put at unreasonable risk.  It is believed that the Russians will pass this technology onto China, Iran and North Korea.

Washington is prepared to engage in war over the Strait of Hormuz at any moment, the Pentagon says. Some observers say the dangerous move is being viewed as a far from worst-case scenario in America, especially by its hawks.

American troops in the Persian Gulf region do not require any build-up for a possible military conflict with Iran, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Wednesday.

"We are not making any special steps at this point in order to deal with the situation. Why? Because, frankly, we are fully prepared to deal with that situation now," Panetta explained.

"In each of the years 2008, 2009, and 2010, significant worries emerged that Western nations might attack Iran. Here again in 2012, similar concerns are once again at the surface."

Robert Naiman writes at Al Jazeera English: It’s deja vu all over again. AIPAC is trying to trick the United States into another catastrophic war with a Middle Eastern country on behalf of the Likud Party’s colonial ambitions, and the New York Times is misleading the public with allegations that say that the country is developing “weapons of mass destruction”.
